Apple Steve Jobs writes about Apple's efforts to become a more enironmental friendly company. "Apple has been criticized by some environmental organizations for not being a leader in removing toxic chemicals from its new products, and for not aggressively or properly recycling its old products. Upon investigating Apple's current practices and progress towards these goals, I was surprised to learn that in many cases Apple is ahead of, or will soon be ahead of, most of its competitors in these areas. Whatever other improvements we need to make, it is certainly clear that we have failed to communicate the things that we are doing well." Among other things, Apple will introduce LEDs in displays to Macs this year.

Dell's statement

Dell seems to have a link to their own environmental page:
http://www.dell.com/html/global/topics/pure_earth/index.html

Not quite as detailed or specific as Apple's; but they DO link to various product sheets, which are quite detailed especially about power consumption.

I managed to dig this PDF about the Inspiron 8500 out of their archive (check for datasheets) as an example.

My system is significantly more powerful (and probably power-consuming) than the one they list there.

It took considerably more digging to find Apple's counterpart page:
